NHS Liberty Program raises funds for breast center (Jan. 2, 2015)
The Liberty program composed of female athletes that play field hockey and lacrosse for Northern High School held a Pink Game “Play for the Cure” on Oct. 2 to raise awareness for the Sheldon E. Goldberg Center for Breast Care at Calvert Memorial Hospital (CMH).
The team made pink shirts that were worn during warm-up prior to the game and decorated the field and bleachers with pink ribbons, posters and signs to honor their loved ones affected by breast cancer. In addition, the young women wore pink headbands, socks and shoestrings to demonstrate their support.
Each athlete had the words “Play for the Cure” written on the inside of their right arm. During the month of October, the money generated from the concessions was donated to the Sheldon E. Goldberg Center for Breast Care.
“It is wonderful to see the dedication to such an excellent cause by these young women,” said Amber Bayse, donor relations coordinator, CMH Foundation, “and we are so appreciative for this generous contribution.”
Liberty is a non-profit program led by young female members that raises money for various projects such as building a turf field at Northern High School and raising money for college scholarships.
